Staff Writer Industry News, IGT 3,852

Popular software and solutions provider IGT (International Game Technology) has signed a deal with the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) to provide the latter company with 700 CrystalDual 27 Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) in the province of Saskatchewan.

The competition to win this venture was tough, but IGT has worked its way through to the final selection. The terminals will have been installed by March 2019.

Canada’s Favourite

The CrystalDual Terminal, which features two HD displays with stunning graphics, is extremely popular in the Canadian market. No wonder, since it also features a top notch audio package, a mobile device charging port and ergonomic design to cater for everyone’s needs.

Eric Karmark, WCLC Vice President, VLT Gaming & Operations, has excitedly commented on the partnership saying that IGT had been part of the team for decades now and that they are happy to continue the collaboration.

“The Western Canada Lottery Corporation is excited to partner with IGT to update the Saskatchewan VLT network with IGT’s best-in-class Video Lottery Terminals and game content.”

Lasting Relationship

Under the contract, WCLC will get 700 of IGT’s best modern hardware solution. Each of the CrystalDual 27 VLTs has an eight-game content bundle tailored specially for WCLC and its clients. Utilising its INTELLIGEN™ Central System, IGT will carry on connecting the WCLC’s terminals and providing the lottery with detailed machine accounting, system security, event tracking and more.

Nick Khin, IGT Chief Commercial Officer, Gaming, is also excited about delivering an exceptional player experience with the new agreement. Extending the already long-standing relationship between the companies is a pivotal point in both of their business strategies.

“The versatility of the CrystalDual 27 VLT will enable WCLC to modernize its gaming venues and entertain players with exceptional, regionally attuned content.”

Applying decades-long experience as a provider in Canada is what makes IGT stand out among other suppliers.
